ET:You have ever worked at English First, one of the biggest course places in Indonesia as Director of Studies. What makes you left that job and joined English Today?
Mr. Yudi: Different jobs give different challenges. It also exposes people to different work atmosphere. I guess my real passion is in the class among the students, not paper work. The chance to practice different managerial and leadership skills is also another reason why I left the job. Each employee is unique and you need to find where their best skills fit best.
ET: Why do you choose teaching English as your career?
Mr. Yudi: To be honest, it was an accident. But I have tried other jobs and this is the best thing. I like to meet people basically. Then, I don’t like to work in a room for a long time. Another thing is teaching gives you chances to travel as well, going to different places. Teaching gives me all I want from a job.
ET: How long have you been teaching English?
Mr. Yudi: I have been teaching English for 21 years. Right, 21 amazing years
ET: What do you like most in teaching and giving training?
Mr. Yudi: I like the different atmosphere and approach needed for even the same class. Though the materials are the same, with different participants it will be different experience. In short, I don’t get bored in a class.
ET: What do you find challenging in teaching and how do you overcome it?
Mr. Yudi: Having no motivation to study is the biggest challenge. Another one is no opportunity to use the language. The rest is about mastering each skill which really depends on the participants’ needs. I give goals to the participants, either a short or long term goal. Then he will be more motivated. I share ways how the participants can use the language. Internet has opened up ways beyond the conventional ones. Using mobile phones can also provide chances to practice different skills. For each skill, different situation needs different approach. Surely there will be ways to improve the participants’ skills.
